    Resin and mat will adhear to the MDF just fine.
    Go for it.....and post pics.





    The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
    the sweetness of that cheap price!

    What I do when I build a box that is both is drill and screw the MDF to the fiberglass and then put a few coats of resin over the seam to make sure there is a good seal.

    the resin will get soaked in the mdf, but after its soaked apply another layer then glass it with some more resin
